Let's Get it Right

All I've wanted to say the last week to my doctors is...Come on let's get it right!

After a week of blood tests, spinal taps and other intrusive medical testing, the doctors have determined that I do not suffer from Diabetes. This is a good thing. I am pleased.

What they have determined though is that I'm suffering from progression of my MS. That is something that is inevitable. The dizziness and weakness is due to damage to some of my Peripheral Nerves and a slight case of Peripheral Neuropathy. Which is common in MS patients. Due to an infection in those damaged nerves my blood pressure and blood glucose levels became erratic.

This is something I can deal with, the MS. I've been dealing with it now for almost 15 years, so I can deal. Dealing with diabetes would have been something a little more difficult, as I love to eat, and love to eat unhealthy. I know I should change my diet, and I have made some changes such as going to diet soda instead of the full blown sugar-ade. I have also been limiting the amount of red meat in my diet and eating leaner meats. All in all I think I can handle this. I am just hoping that DJ can adapt with me.

Going to dinner with Veruca tonight, haven't hung with him in months now. Hopefully we can catch up on everything that has been going on. It will be good to see him again. Hopefully he is managing his mid-life crisis...Kare Bear sent an e-mail last week and she has all moved to Savannah, Georgia with her husband and daughter. Today I seen that tropical storm Tammy is headed that way, figures. She said she would call once they get settled. I hope things go well with them there. Her baby is due soon and maybe, just maybe DJ and I can make a trip down to see them afterwards.

So that's an update for now, got the boys this weekend so surely I will have something to share! Have a great Hump Day.

Sorry to hear your news. I hope it levels out quickly! At least no more prick for you! (tee hee, I got to use it too!)
